    Q:Can a diverter be connected to this barrel to fill instead of draining into it?

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes that is possible, you can use the overflow fitting included in the standard kit as an inlet from the downspout rather than allowing it to drain into the barrel from the top.

      Q:Can you paint the barrel a different color?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes you can apply a spray paint or other paint that adheres to plastic, we recommend Rustoleum brand it says right on it, bonds to plastic and is available at Home Depot of course. Do a base coat with this and then you can use whatever other type of paint you want on top of that, get some cardboard out and cut shapes to make diy stencils. Sponge brushes and regular are both fun :)

                Q:Are you able to link 2 rain barrels together? Are instructions on how to do this available? Thank you

                Answer This Question

                A:  Yes, you can link an unlimited amount of barrels by running a short hose from the overflow connector to the top of the next one. The only catch is each barrel has to be lower than the previous one so the overflow connector is about equal in height to the.
